Gateway Theatre of Shopping

Just a few kilometers north of Durban lies the fittingly named Gateway Theatre of Shopping. It is, reportedly, on of the subcontinent's best one-stop shopping centers, and one that enjoys a convenient location just off the main highway. It houses a multitude of clothing stores, various boutiques, a food court, cinema, bowling alley, and other shopping and entertainment spots.


Shopping opportunities abound across Durban, and street-side vendors who sell their goods right off the ground are relatively common. For a taste of quintessential Durban head to Victoria Street and shop around at its well-known Indian market, selling all manner of trinkets and spices. There are quite a few boutiques selling work of local artisans across Durban – the 8 Morrison Street complex and African Art Centre are two locations absolutely not to be missed.
